Pesticides Action Network Europe (PAN EU)


Formed in 1983, PAN Europe is a network of European non-governmental organisations (NGOs) promoting sustainable alternatives to pesticides. A major focus of PAN Europe’s work involves initiating Europe-wide measures to facilitate a broad-based reduction in pesticide use. PAN Europe’s activities include:

  • Supporting national pesticide reduction programmes,
  • Promoting targets for organic and sustainable agriculture,
  • Tackling insufficiencies of the EU pesticide approval system,
  • Publishing a quarterly PAN Europe newsletter,
  • Facilitating an email network on European pesticides issues,
  • Arranging an annual PAN Europe conference.
  • PAN Europe is facilitated by PAN Germany and PAN UK. These organisations also represent PAN Europe in the international PAN.
